Product Description

Bernkasteler Lay (pronounced LIE — an old dialect word for “slate”) is situated around the Dr. Loosen estate house, directly along the Mosel, just outside the village of Bernkastel. As the name indicates, the soil is predominantly blue slate, but it is heavier and deeper than the soil in the neighbouring villages of Wehlen or Graach. This site has a gentler slope than the estate’s other vineyards. It produces richly textured, assertive wines. 
These are 60 year-old vines on average, grown on blue Devonian slate. It's farmed sustainably, according to strict German environmental regulations. Cool fermentation in a combination of stainless steel tanks and Fuder barrels, half fermented with natural yeasts, half with cultured yeasts.

Such a fun and juicy thing to drink. It has a tickle of spritz (at least as a young wine), sweet and fresh flavours of citrus and green apple sorbet, a bit of spice, some floral things, a subtle slaty texture and a brisk and tangy finish of fine length. It’s hard not to drink it too quickly. 92 Points The Wine Front
